It seems that there’s no stopping the advance of golf. This month, part of the snowy slopes of the Val d’Isère will be taken up with the increasingly ubiquitous sport, with British and French golfers battling it out for bragging rights

From March 29th to April 3rd 2016, it’s golf-on-snow time in Val d’Isère. The beautiful and unspoiled Manchet Valley is the setting for the six days of the Val d’Isère Winter Golf tournament. This year, this prestigious event goes way beyond being just a golf tournament for professionals and dedicated amateurs. France will take on Great Britain at golf …and at skiing. You really can’t afford to miss the magical atmosphere of what promises to be a unique sporting contest.

First Edition of the FRANCE-GREAT BRITAIN CHALLENGE
Winter Golf kicks off with this inaugural tournament on Tuesday, March 29th and on Wednesday, March 30th. The fact that British visitors form the major part of Val d’Isère’s winter clientèle makes them especially welcome for this international skiing and golfing spectacle.

Entry fee: €290 per person
